Eric Muller’s phone is friends with drug dealers! Okay, I have no evidence to back that up whatsoever. In fact, I have strong reason to believe Eric (and his phone) are not involved in any wrongdoing whatsoever. But he got a wrong number voicemail the other day from somebody who probably does live in the drugs & violence underground. It was a very funny and desperate voicemail. Hell of a wrong number, there, Sparky. Eric asksif anybody else has had a similar experience. Rather than threadjack his comments with a long cellphone wrong number tale involving drug dealers, I?ll tell it here.
Many years ago I moved to Washington D.C. for work. I bought a new cell phone, since back in the day, you couldn?t keep the same number for life, unless you wanted to pay roaming charges for life (while walking 10 miles uphill to grad school, each way). Besides, my new phone only weighed about 9 pounds and fit into an Alice Medium pack, unlike the 13 pounder that I had to carry around in it’s own dialysis machine bag before that.
